MIND­FUL­NESS

Runner's World (UK) - - YOGA FOR RUNNERS -

Yoga’s med­i­ta­tive as­pect trains your brain to fo­cus on the present. That way, when a neg­a­tive thought pops up on a tough run, you can let it pass in­stead of dwelling on it. Mind­ful­ness turns on your parasym­pa­thetic ner­vous sys­tem, which low­ers blood pres­sure, eases mus­cu­lar ten­sion and slows your breath so you can run faster with less ef­fort.
